Chapter 4: And so it begins
When we arrived at My grandfather's house my father was the first to see us,
"Bella, renesmee." He greeted as he led us into the living room where the rest were,
"Renesmee, how are you dear? i havn't seen you in awhile!" Esme said as she held me in a embrace. I smiled,
"Im just fine, thank you, i hope you all are doing well." I looked around the room for a moment, "But i suppose we aren't here to discuss our previous days, are we?" i said a bit quieter.
"Alice," My father edged her on," Is there any change?"
Alice stood up quietly, shaking slightly.
"The decision has been made.." she started, her voice quiet. My father waited impateint
"Alice! what did you see!" he growled.
Jasper put his arm around alice's waist.
"Edward, Please" said my mother
"Your right,Alice please forgive my unreasonable behaviour" Alice nodded slightly and continued
"They are stuck between three decisions.. They are comtemplating whether thier going to let renesmee stay, make her join them or-" Alice paused for a moment, scanning the room. Her high picthed voice has never sounded any darker; "Or thier going to kill her."
"NO!" A snarl immidelty ripped through my mother's voice. My father comforted her.
"We'll fight" i heard emmette say darkly. A tiny voice flooded through the air.
"No," i said meekly "You can't fight the volturi, they are much too powerful, it will only get you all killed"
"We can try"
Said my father, agreeing with emmette's earlier notion
I heard jasper speak,
"No, renesmee is right. If we did fight, we are just asking for a death wish.."
"Then, what?" rosalie started "Were just going to let it happen"
"Rosalie," Carlisle spoke, "We may be able to reason with the volturi"
"How can we reason with them if we don't even know what they want!?" Rosalie pointed out.
The room went scilent. Rosalie was right. We don't know what they want, but we know they want me. What of use could i be for them? There are others like me, they are aware of that. I bit my lip anxiously, then i saw my father exchange glances with alice,
"Yes, they would be of help. Although i doubt of thier assistance because of irina.." Alice slomley nodded her head. My father spoke again, "But Im sure we have" he hesitated "Others.. who would help".
"But having them would give us the disadvantage.." my mother looked at alice, then back at my father,
"But is it safe for them?"
"Well it should be.."
"Then, if that means more proection, and i doubt he would be against it at all." My father nodded,
"I'll call jacob"
"Wait, the wolves? No, we can't bring them into this, not them, not jacob!" I protested.
They all looked at me, had they figued out how i really felt, then i saw my father shake his head at my mother. Was that him saying he couldn't read my mind.. or somthing else?
"Nes- Renesmee.." carlisle started, "It will be fine, the volturi have no reason to harm them."
"They do if thier on our side." I pointed out. "I think i should tell jacob, if you were to tell him, he might be a little more, on edge." They all nodded. Alice threw her car keys towards me. I caught them in my hands, everyone looked at her.
"Have a nice drive!" she called lightly, My father spoke,
"Alice, you surely aren't letting her drive, she is fourteen,theorecticcly, let alone she hasn't even learned to drive yet."
"It's perfectly safe" she aassured him. She winked at me.
Then i remembered the time a year ago when she had taught me, didn't take long though. My father raised an eyebrow,
"You taught her?" He asked unsure, she smiled and i headed out the door and into the car. My mother stood beside the window after i got in, i rolled it down.
"Renesmee, you are not driving,"
"But-" i protested
"Your mothers right" my father agreed. I started to laugh, not because of thier anger, but because of the fact they were worried i'd get caught. I smiled at my parents as i put the keys in the ignition,
"What's so funny?" My father asked
"Just the thought of grandpa charlie pulling me over.." My parents couldn't help but smile , but then my mother spoke,
"Just, Just please be careful."
"I will" i said as i pulled out of the driveway.
